Each statement contains a directive or is associated with a directive. A directive identifies the purpose of the statement. The following directives are supported:
|CHAR||Ignored by CLIv2, allowing the same file to be used by both CLIv2 and TDP.|
|CHARSET||Explicitly begins a definition and identifies the encoding scheme.|
|END||Ends processing of records in the file.|
|MONOCASE||Ignored by CLIv2, allowing the same file to be used by both CLIv2 and TDP.|
|NUMERICS||Defines the numeric characters.|
|SANITIZE||Ignored by CLIv2, allowing the same file to be used by both CLIv2 and TDP.|
|UNICODE||Defines single-byte codepoints in the character set.|
A file describes one or more character sets. Each description begins with a CHARSET directive and ends with the next CHARSET directive, the END directive, or the last record in the file. The CHAR, MONOCASE, NUMERICS, SANITIZE, and UNICODE directives may appear in any order within a description.
The following sections provide information and syntax diagrams for each directive. Refer to How to Read Syntax Diagrams for additional information on syntax diagrams.
